Justification of Red List category
This enigmatic primary forest specialist is thought to have a moderately small population, which is highly localised throughout its small range and thought to be declining owing to habitat degradation. It is therefore classified as Near Threatened. Should the population be found to be smaller, or declining more rapidly, the species would warrant uplisting to a higher threat category.

Population size: unknown
